Hello Heiner,

I’m kicking in here although the thread is a little older.
I think Thomas wanted something else, at least I expected something different when I found the topic of this thread.

My current setup:
– one passive speaker
– Raspi3
– JustBoom Amp Hat
– Rotary Encoder to start/stop playback and change volume
The Pi with the attached soundcard is built into the speaker and I use Squeezelite to play music from my Logitech Media Server running on a windows server in my network. The rotary encoder is built built into the speaker. So I built kind of a Squeezebox.

What I want:
I would like to switch between squeezelite and another player that I can stream music to from my smartphone. Switching should be possible with a button at the speaker. Ideally the already installed rotary encoder could be used for that, e.g. pressing the button for 5 seconds switches to the next player.

Is this possible and would I need extra hardware for that?
Thank you!
Greets
